Offered is a rare art nouveau / beaux arts figural dragons and foiled peacock eye glass bead slide necklace. This enchanting necklace is not marked but most likely dates to the late 1800s to early 1900s, Victorian to Edwardian eras. This necklace features luminous iridescent green green glass with striking cobalt blue "eyes". This unique necklace has a heavy double sided dragon pendant and the slide also features a winged dragon.
This necklace measures 29" around wearable length and then hangs down 5" at the drop. There is no clasp and necklace fits over the head. Necklace is in very good vintage condition with no damage. There is some wear appropriate to age, nothing distracting or readily noticeable. Necklace is a pale gold tone in color. Although there is no maker's mark, I do believe the beautiful foiled peacock eye art glass is old Czech / Czechoslovakia / Bohemia in origin.
This is a beautiful old antique necklace, whether you are a fashionista, or a collector, this necklace is guaranteed to please! Between Downton Abbey, Dr. Who, Penny Dreadful and Game of Thrones, Steam punk fashions have made Victorian and Edwardian as well as revival and mourning jewelry more collectible than ever!!!! Don't miss your chance to own this rare peacock eye glass necklace.
